In an intense urban environment like Wuhan, knowing how to relax with a good cup of tea is the power move. Some teahouses offer a wide variety of dining options, some focus exclusively on tea. Whatever your tea-related proclivities, here are four high-quality teahouses for a calming experience in Wuhan.

1) Wujia GardenView In Map
The former residence of a famous northern army general, Wujia Garden is known for its tasteful décor, relaxing atmosphere, free wifi, and upstairs open-air seating, perfect for stargazing. Wujia is one of the fanciest teahouses in Wuhan, so there is a spending minimum of 35 RMB per person in the main seating area and 48 RMB per person in the private rooms. We recommend the Pu'er (普洱) and Iron Goddess of Mercy (铁观音) teas.

3) Rudao Teahouse (Xudong location)View In Map
Rudao Teahouse on resplendent East Lake is a seriously classy joint. First, there are only five tables. Second, for the privilege of sitting at one of them, you've got to choose one of the teas worth 300 RMB or more per unit (两). We recommend the Longjing (龙井); it's by far the most popular tea in the house. Just make sure to bring enough cash with you!

4) Mingyue TeahouseView In Map
Mingyue is that rare teahouse that focuses on the pure tea experience; i.e. there's no food so don't come on an empty stomach. We recommend the Jinsi Dianhong (金丝滇红), Chennian Pu'er (陈年普洱), Liu'an Guapian (六安瓜片), or Taiping Houkui (太平猴魁). At around 380 RMB a can, Mingyue is on the pricey side, but you'll get what you pay for.
